Posted below are 52 RADAR swaths currently available on the NASA Planetary Image Atlas website. These swaths are available in a scientifically useful format, but one which is not accessable to most of the public. The following files are jpegs converted from the original files on the PDS website. Each swath is available in three size formats: 32 pixels per degree (1.4 km/pixel), 128 pixels per degree (0.351 km/pixel), and 256 pixels per degree (0.1755 km/pixel). Due to the limitation of Photoshop, which is used to convert tif versions of these swaths to JPEG, some of the full-sized swaths are split into two files.

These swaths are posted here for the convenience of the general public, and are not in a scientifically useful format. Planetary scientists, please use the versions posted on the PDS for analysis. These swaths were planned and processed (except for the conversion to JPEG format) by the Cassini RADAR team, and acknowledgement of this great data set goes to them.

Here is a map combining the RADAR swaths released so far and the latest ISS near-infrared albedo map:
